Laser Teeth Whitening FAQs
IS LASER TEETH WHITENING FOR EVERYONE?
The DaVinci Laser Teeth Whitening System provides dramatic results for anyone who wants to whiten their teeth. This includes people with teeth that have been stained by substances such as coffee, tea, soda, smoking, etc. It will also lighten teeth stained by tetracycline, speckled by fluoride, or hereditary discoloration.
SHOULD I CONSIDER LASER TEETH WHITENING?
Studies have shown that people with whiter teeth look younger and that there is a correlation between high self-esteem and a bright, confident smile.
HOW WHITE WILL MY TEETH GET?
After whitening with the DaVinci Laser Teeth Whitening System, teeth shades brighten an average of five to 14 shades on the Teeth Shade Card. Although individual results will depend on how discolored the teeth were originally, the end result will be brighter, shiny teeth. Remember, everyone’s teeth are different and your teeth will only go as white as your teeth will go. Everyone’s teeth have a stopping point.
HOW LONG WILL THE WHITENING LAST?
This varies from person to person and depends on your diet and lifestyle, but the effects usually last for one to three years with proper maintenance. Periodic touch-up treatments are recommended for customers who frequently consume products such as coffee, dark soda, tea, red wine, tomatoes sauce or other staining products such as tobacco.
IS LASER TEETH WHITENING SAFE?
Yes, our products are made in our USA laboratories and are FDA compliant. Scientific research has shown that the active ingredients in the DaVinci Laser Teeth Whitening Gels are safe and effective for cosmetic teeth whitening. The DaVinci Laser Teeth Whitening Gel does not change or damage the structure of the teeth; it merely lifts and removes the stains, making your teeth brighter.
HOW LONG DOES A WHITENING SESSION TAKE?
One whitening session takes 15 minutes to complete. Depending on the level of discoloration of your teeth you may choose a 2nd 20 minute session. Start to finish your whitening session will take 15 – 45 minutes. It takes no longer than the time it would for you to have a haircut or a facial - it is that simple!
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LASER TEETH WHITENING AND TEETH WHITENING PERFORMED IN THE DENTAL OFFICE?
The DaVinci Laser Teeth Whitening System uses the same technology used by other teeth whitening providers for in-office whitening and gives you great results. However, our process has been simplified so that you can administer the process yourself using our cosmetic whitening gel specially developed for the use with the LED light. Designed with the comfort and safety of the customer in mind; our process is safe, gentle, and produces superior results over other teeth whitening options
DOES IT HURT?
Most clients experience no sensitivity during or after the session. A very small percentage of clients may feel some sensitivity on the teeth or soft tissues, especially if they consume very cold or hot foods or drinks within two hours after the treatment. Therefore it is recommended that clients avoid consuming extremely hot or cold food or beverages for the first two hours following the treatment. Any sensitivity is usually gone within 24 hours.
WILL LASER TEETH WHITENING WORK ON CROWNS, FILLINGS, VENEERS AND BRIDGES (COMPOSITE MATERIALS)?
The DaVinci Laser Teeth Whitening System will remove staining from composite materials but will not whiten the composite materials beyond the original color of the material used. The DaVinci Laser Teeth Whitening System works well if your natural teeth are darker than the composite materials original color. Laser teeth whitening is a good option if you plan to replace the crown or filling after your whitening treatment. The DaVinci Laser Teeth Whitening System will not damage or hurt the composite material.
